Catana 522 LA MARENE offers Catana's legendary performance and a hull shape that allows a quantum leap in interior volume and payload capacity for a cat in this size class. Imagine the performance of the Catana 47 with substantially more galley space, storage space in the cabins and lazarette volume to carry all of the paddle boards, bikes, cruising gear. The powerful sailplan includes a carbon, composite mainsail, composite, triradial genoa (new 2015) and two spinnakers. Three electric winches facilitate shorthanded maneuvering. A carbon mast, carbon park-avenue boom and dagger-boards are the engine of this thoroughbred. A straight shaft powertrain (no saildrives), huge portholes, hard-top bimini, extra-wide cockpit are some of the signature items of the Catana 522. This two owner cat has never chartered. The current owners have been permanent live-aboards since 2009. They have used the yacht very lightly in the Leeward Islands and the engine hours are under 2000. They have continually maintained and upgraded the yacht. This owner version Catana 522 features the owner's suite to starboard and two large double staterooms to port. The port aft cabin bed can convert to two twins. The galley-up is layed out in a U shape with an additional shelf providing counter space for a full gourmet kitchen. A large sliding window allows outstanding access to the cockpit table and seating. The huge, airy saloon is to starboard and the navigation station to starboard. The interior is beautifully finished in cherry wood and alcantara liners, all couter-tops are corian. See the attached walk-thru video. Loaded with equipment for voyaging: 8 KVA Northern Lights generator, large watermaker, full air- conditioning, solar panels, washer, dryer and large volume fridges and freezer. Most of the navigation and communications electronics were replaced in 2015 with the latest B&G and Furuno state-of-the-art-equipment. She has radar, satellite communications, redundant GPS and plotters, Simrad autopilot. The original electrical system of electronic relay circuit boards was replaced in 2015 with a new ETA Powerplex: a much more reliable and serviceable system. The cockpit floor and transom steps were replaced with new teak in 2015. She is looking very sharp.
